Brownstoner Puts Together the Pieces
A mash-up of the Fort Greene & Clinton Hill District Expansion proposals. Include the Wallabout proposal (http://www.myrtleavenue.org/WallaboutCulturalResourceSurvey.pdf) and you’ve got a lot of this section of northern Brooklyn which is surveyed but still unprotected.

All three of these surveys were written by architectural historian Prof. Andrew S.
